Light Novels Translated and Published in English
Magic has been tamed as another form of technology, and the practice of magic is now a rigorous discipline. Im excited for it, it will be nice to finally read the series without any of the blatant typos and missing words in the fan version.
After the release of its anime version and two manga variants, the original light novels of Tsutomu Satou 's The Irregular at Magic High School have arrived in English, courtesy of Yen On. While they aren't likely to win over any readers who found the other versions unappealing, they are by far the best format for the story of a future where magic has become a technological advancement rather than the provenance of elves and wizards, with the first novel of the two-book Enrollment Arc being fairly strong. Both novels do suffer from the technobabble that plagues the anime, but with a better sense of the characters and a smoother flow to the story's progression, these do give credence to the idea that the original is always better. The story takes place in and follows siblings Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba as they begin their first year at the most prestigious institution of magical learning in Japan, First Magic High School. Miyuki is placed in Course 1, the gifted class, while Tatsuya ends up in Course 2 due to his poor practical skills — basically, it's the equivalent of a student excelling on the short answer questions on a test but failing the multiple choice; it isn't that he's not smart, it just doesn't show up well in standardized testing.
